<description>
<p>
Multiple buffer overflows have been reported in OpenTTD, when storing
long for client names (CVE-2008-3547), in the TruncateString function
in src/gfx.cpp (CVE-2008-3576) and in src/openttd.cpp when processing a
large filename supplied to the "-g" parameter in the ttd_main function
(CVE-2008-3577).
</p>
</description>
<impact type="high">
<p>
An authenticated attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the OpenTTD server.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All OpenTTD users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=games-simulation/openttd-0.6.3&quot;</code>
</resolution>
